We return with this year's India Game Developer Conference with yet another BYOG. This time it will start on the 25th of October and conclude on the 28th. This will  be the 14th edition of the the BYOG jam since it started back in 2010.

What is a BYOG?

BYOG (Build Your Own Game) is an annual game jam, where game developers all over the country come together to make a game within 48 hours over a combination of themes. Started in 2010, BYOGs are one of the oldest game jams organised every year in the Asian continent and have a rich history of identifying and encouraging game development talent from the country. Past winners have gone on to win multiple international awards, launch successful game development companies, and make amazing games and careers.
